Twenty-four years (bloody hell) after Clueless hit cinemas, four of the film’s main cast reunited at the 2019 Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2), over the weekend. Yes, you are about to feel real old.
The blessed Alicia Silverstone (Cher), Paul Rudd (Josh), Donald Faison (Murray), and Breckin Meyer (Travis) spoke on a panel about the iconic film. They shared behind-the-scene stories, chatted about the movie’s impact on popular culture, and took part in a Q&A.
“I loved playing Cher,” Silverstone said per Buzzfeed. “It was such a fun character and working with these guys — every one of them was so much fun … I didn’t know who that girl was, so it was really fun to be her. Because it wasn’t how I lived my life.”
Faison said he reckons Cher and Josh would still be together “if we were to ever do a sequel…”

Then, Meyer revealed he and Silverstone actually went to the same high school together but only properly met on set. Naturally, Rudd also answered a lot of questions about the forthcoming Avengers: Endgame.
On Instagram, the legends posted some piccies from the day.
“Rollin’ with the homies…” Faison captioned his post – a line said by the late Brittany Murphy, who starred as Tai in the movie.
Anywho, Clueless will be receiving the reboot treatment in the near future. Sure, this might make you say “UGH, as if” in a very Cher-like fashion but hey, it could be good. The Hollywood Reporter says Marquita Robinson – writer and story editor on Netflix‘s Glow will pen the script. Girls Trip‘s Tracy Oliver will produce the flick.
Clueless‘ inspiration – Jane Austen‘s Emma – is also copping yet another film adaptation. In it, Split‘s Anya Taylor-Joy will star in the titular role alongside Bill Nighy, Miranda Hart, and Callum Turner.
If you’re super duper keen to rewatch Clueless, you can catch the flick on Netflix.
